    is there any application/appliance that can monitor a server and page me if something is wrong or call me or something?

    what types of things do you want to monitor? i usually impliment my own. there is a little command-line program called BLAT that will just send mail. We'll use that in conjunction with sql server's built in operators and jobs to watch servers. i don't know of any specific software, however

    anything i can, but i want it to send a text message to me or something. i guess i can always write my own application. sending a page isnt to hard to do, but i'd much rather just get an application if there already was one.

    compaq has a product called insight manager, hp openview ought to do it, computer associates had a nice graphical product with lots of shiny bells and whistles but i can't remember the name. i'm sure there are a slew of others that can tell you all sorts of things as long as you are willing to run snmp

    yeah, and i'm guessing they charge a pretty penny for them as well. I would just break it down and find what you want to be notified for, and then just write a little script to take care of it. You don't really need to compile some big app.

    Any idea on how to make it a plain message without all the X-POP header shit? That stuff doesn't get stripped by my cell provider :wtc:

    Edit: I think the problem is that it EHLO's instead HELO's
